|How to Hookup digital cable box to existing Analog TV setup|
This connection involves a Digital cable box, vcr, dvd player, audio/video receiver and Analog TV. Adding digital cable is easy. Most digital cable boxes have RF outputs (channel 3 or 4) and composite a/v outs. Cable TV providers are moving many more channels to digital, so going digital is more and more the way to maintain your old favorite analog channels for viewing. If you have analog cable TV already, then going to digital cable is as simple as hooking up the digital cable box. Your existing coaxial cable is still used just like before. (You may need a cable box for each TV)
